“This Savage Song” by Victoria Schwab has been on my TBR list for a long time and I finally got a chance to read it, and I loved it.
The blurb on the back of the books says:
“Kate Harker wants to be as ruthless as her father, to prove she’s worthy to stand beside him and lead their city. August Flynn wants to be human. But he isn’t. He’s a monster, on that can steal souls with a song. His own father’s secret weapon. Their city is divided. Their city is crumbling. Kate and August are the only two who see both sides, the only two who could do something. But how do you decide whether to be a hero or a villain when it’s hard to tell which is which?”
This book was a fun read for me. Unlike most YA novels the focus was more on discovery and friendship than romance. Prejudices are put aside, as Kate and August team up to find out the truth of what is going on in their city and who is responsible. Harsh realities are discovered as Kate remembers her past and looks towards the future. August makes some wonderful discoveries about himself but they are over shadowed by the terrible truth he finds out about one of his family members.
If you want a great read, I suggest getting this book. I give it FIVE STARS.
